Two civil rights groups Monday called on the Republican Party, and President Bush specifically, to repudiate anti-gay speakers.

 

An open letter to the President from the Human Rights Campaign and the National Black Justice Coalition was released Monday to the media.

 

"We are deeply disturbed to learn that Donnie McClurkin, Sheri Dew and Bishop Keith Butler, who have made deeply offensive comments about GLBT Americans, will be featured at the Republican Convention and we urge you to repudiate their divisive and appalling comments," the letter said.

 

"Mr. McClurkin, who will be entertaining from the convention stage on Thursday has accused gay Americans of "trying to kill our children" and has called homosexuality a "curse".

 

In an article about same-sex marriage, Ms. Dew, who is speaking before the convention on Monday called for "a comparison between the atrocities of Hitler and what is happening in terms of contemporary threats against the family".

 

"Mr. President, featuring individuals on the stage of your convention who compare a group of Americans to Hitler and accuse them of killing children is divisive and irresponsible," the letter said.

Excerpts from Sheri Dew's Republican National Convocation Invocation on Monday:

 

We plead with Thee for peace and continued freedom-not only freedom from those who would terrorize us and encroach upon our peace of mind, but also freedom from acrimony....

We worship Thee in many ways.

But as a follower of Jesus Christ, and in behalf of all who believe likewise, we offer this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ.
